Hello, my name is Carmella and I am addicted to Mod Podge.....
I have to say that this post would not be made possible without an awesome blog that I found a few weeks ago, Life Without Whiteout.
Ginger from Life Without Whiteout made this adorable canvas art for her "little helper"
I learned so much from this post and wanted to try my hand at making a little Mod Podge canvas art myself...Ginger's complete instructions are HERE , you will want to check these out to see how it's really done!
I wanted to make my daughter a new painting for her room, with all of this talk about the new baby, I wanted her to know how special she will always be to me
I started this project with a picture of my sweet girl taken by my friend at Bird's Eye Photography
Using Picnik, I cropped the picture and turned it into a pencil sketch
Then I printed it out on regular printer paper and covered the entire image in Mod Podge
I then turned the image "face" down...hehehe onto the canvas and smoothed it out
After it dried completely (I gave it about 2 hours) I used a sponge to wet the back of the paper and began to scrape away the paper
I kept removing the paper until the image was the only thing left on the canvas
Now time to finish....
I used my trusty Cricut to cut stencils....all I had to do was think about my sweet little girl and all the things I love about her
I continued stenciling down the canvas using pink and purple acrylic paints until it was all finished.......
I think it turned out great...and I think it will be a nice surprise for her when she gets home from school today!
